Chiropractic care during pregnancy is an important component among your prenatal care choices. Preexisting but unnoticed imbalances in your spine and pelvis can become stressed during pregnancy. These imbalances often lead to discomforts such as lower back pain, sciatica, pubic pain, or round ligament pain. In addition, imbalances in the pelvis may restrict baby’s movement and hamper optimal positioning for delivery, which can slow down labor and add pain and distress to both mother and baby.
Doctors of Chiropractic work specifically with your spine and pelvis throughout pregnancy to restore a state of balance and create an optimal environment for the developing baby. Chiropractic care can relieve and even prevent the common discomforts experienced in pregnancy. Published studies have also indicated that spinal and pelvic adjustments throughout pregnancy may even reduce labor time and allow for an easier and safer delivery. Chiropractic care during pregnancy is very gentle and safe and promotes a natural and uncomplicated pregnancy and delivery.
